We specialize in Fresh Fruit

Your Leading Tropical Fruit Importer

Our History

Our founder, José Javier Naranjo got his start in the produce export industry in his home country of Ecuador. Together with Mr. Segundo Wong, the late founder of the Favorita Fruit Company, Mr. Naranjo helped found Rey Banano del Pacifico, C.A. (Reybanpac) in 1977. Initially, Mr. Naranjo managed Reybanpac’s Eastern European sales department. In the 1980s, Mr. Naranjo moved to the United States but continued working with Reybanpac, providing logistics management services for the export of bananas from Ecuador.

In 1996, Mr. Naranjo formed Tropical Fruit Trading, Inc. and began sourcing produce for customers in Europe, Russia, and the Middle East.

Who We Are Today

Since its founding, Tropical Fruit Trading has continued to grow and expand its market and products. Today Tropical Fruit Trading’s products can be found throughout the United States, Europe, and the Middle East.

Our core business is the full-service sale of conventional and USDA-certified organic bananas. We also have a growing plantain, pineapple, and ginger business. Our staff and grower partners in the countries of origin ensure that only the best quality produce is sourced for our customers. From its headquarters in Miami, FL, Tropical Fruit Trading provides cost-effective logistics services for our customers throughout the world.
